Diorific Lips

I haven't had a chance to wash my hair OR put on my usual full face of makeup today as I'm still on the potty train.  I know, wah, wah, wah.   But despite my lack of time to devote to my beauty routine, a few swipes of my new Dior lipstick and a pair of sunglasses is all I need to immediately feel put together...

{I feel like a movie STAR when swiping on this long wear lip color!}

It might all be mental, but there is something about putting on a pricey lipstick that seriously makes me feel a bit more glamorous (even when I'm spending half of my day in our bathroom with a stubborn toddler!).  Could it be the fancy golden tube, the Christian Dior brand, or the actual rich red shade??  I don't know - probably a combo of all 3.  But either way, I feel complete even when my hair is in a messy top knot and I'm wearing a very worn chambray shirt.  

My lips feel Dior-ific!!

Do you think expensive lipsticks are worth the price tag?

you look fab girl! Is it funny that have YET to purchase a pricey lipstick?! Is it worth the extra $? I used the revlon blavk cherry instead of the Tom Ford black orchid but it didn't glide on so I'm wondering if i should invest in a higher quality one? Maybe not black orchid bc i won't be wearing that daily :)
also look forward to some tips on potty training! No clue about any of that lol

@andeelayne - I am finding it shocking you haven't chunked down over 30 bucks for a pricey lipstick yet?!! HA! I will say, I have 2 Tom Ford lipsticks, and am not super impressed. BUT, my Dior and YSL lipsticks, are TOTALLY worth the price in terms of the formula, and of course, the packaging. I always buy very wearable colors when I purchase expensive lippies though:) Girl, hopefully I'll have the potty training down for girls by the time Ava is ready!
@Saumya - Ultra Luxe - exactly! Def give these Dior ones a try!

Ah! Yes YSL is 100% worth it :)
Do you use a brush or just swipe that beauty straight out of the tube?

@paigeemoe - I actually use a lip brush to apply this for precise application!!
